What “brave” reporter will ask Trump how he can pardon such egregious crimes while simultaneously embedded in a campaign against Hunter Biden? It’s so nauseating mind boggling and ridiculous I just can’t even any more...and Federaalist Soc and freedom caucus must be demolished Just like Hillary Clinton why isn’t she in jail?
America loves liars ... America is ashamed of our president and his corrupción . We are a weak country manipulated by the rich . And about that too... 🤭 His donation to the Trump Campaign must have gone through Didn't he steal from the 9/11 responders? I guess trump and his cult must of forgot Former NYPD Commissioner Kerik, a former business partner of Trump ally, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, also is helping with the war criminal Eddie Gallagher's case.

Trump expected to grant clemency to Rod Blagojevich and ex-New York police commissioner Bernard KerikBlagojevich is in the middle of serving a 14-year sentence in Colorado federal prison. The Illinois Democrat was found guilty of attempting to trade the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama for money or favors. And Al Capone right? Why is Trump letting all these crooked cheaters off the hook? Let's call this the prelude to Roger Stone and Trump yucking it up at M-a-L this Friday night.
Birds of a feather with big Rump. lmk when all the coloured youth serving 15+ yrs for small crimes getting pardoned Yikes look at that head 😲 WTH....👽 Filthy crooks Served 3 years - he was one of the heroes after 9-11. Armed Robbery and wounding a person gets an average 5 years. 3 seems about right. Say how much time he served - you know the answer but no you want to put your political spin on it
Trumpikov is a sick criminal. I think he really believes that by letting other criminals out of prison, he is setting the stage for his own freedom. It's the whole 'but other people didn't have to pay for their crimes.' Plus it's powerful for him to be hateful. Donald will be going to the slammer for life very soon
Tax fraud and lying. Is he trying to set a precedent? WoW 😡

Truly one of the greatest presidents ever! 4 MORE YEARS MAFA2020 They all also happen to look like mobsters Liars and cheats are Trump's finest people Release the swamp? SadieTNResist wtf?
This is your daily reminder that Barack Obama commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning Manning is one of the greatest traitors & leakers of all time Nearly half a million military documents stolen & released, putting US lives at danger Where was the media outrage then? Excellent. Bernie Kerik is one of those people who look terrifying and disgusting after having lost a lot of weight

I feel sorry how they come out of prison all fragile & deteriorating looking. I'm grateful of his services & involvement during 9/11. Sadly, he took a wrong turn in life messing with 'Uncle Sam.' 'America's mayor' ColludyRudy hired mobbed up kerik to be Police Commissioner. Un-fucking-believable What do the Trump fanatics have to say? Fake news? Draining the swamp? Speak up and defend your messiah

A man after his own heart King trump took over D.C...one man show ..needs to be forcibly removed, pass a bill so the public could vote to have the military remove him,.. Building his own Gestapo
In other news water is fucking wet Trump just wishes he could have done the same for Epstein. Nice banana republic GOP This guy stole money from 9/11 first responders 'I am above the law' … 'My family is above the law' 'My friends are above the law' 'Friends of my friends are above the law' 'Colleagues of my friends are above the law' 'All (R)'s are above the law, except M Romney' … Just like Moscow Mitch want it.

Looks like Giuliani called in a HUGE favor from POTUS He got him to pardon scumbag disgraced Kerik. Well he may have pardoned him but in the eyes of NYPD past & present he will forever be a utter disgrace to the NYPD
There is no bottom. jaketapper A “pardon” by IMPEACHED potus realDonaldTrump does NOT change my opinion of Bernard Kerik as a liar, fraud, cheat, adulterer, manipulator and narcissist PreetBharara cnn Bernard Kerik has shown me who he is and I believe him. The World should know. Can NY State go after Kerik?
Kerik along with Trump stole from the 9/11 fund. Kerik got caught, he is a dirty cop/ correction officer. Trump love criminals like him around bc they are loyal criminals. VOTENOGOP2020 hermitme1 In Trump's world, those aren't crimes... they're qualifications. DID YOU KNOW THAT GROOMING GANGS CAR BURNINGS SHOOTINGS IN THE STREET BOMB TERROR ATTACKS Actually is not Swedish, but was brought from middle east and North Africa? wearetravellers dontflysas
Jon Stewart needs to raise hell.

jaketapper Trump is corrupt and he likes corrupt people as faithful supporters. Thank the republican senators who kept Trump in office. jaketapper Tax fraud? Who would engage in that! (Says the Donald)? Haha Sounds like he’s your twin sir...
Gee...I wonder if Giuliani had a hand in this one. Good luck with that. If you think a future president will pardon YOU? Think again! Great so we are on the pardon parade to let the department of corrections finest out and a first class ticket to the White House? Pardoning his mobster buddies. But like... why? What good reason do you have pardoning people like this?
Donald has 'released the krakens'. ALL swamp things. Wow. What laws? 🤷♂️ Imagine my shock that a criminal in power is helping to free criminals that have done what he has done. Trump is a criminal simply for interfering with an investigation. republicansarecrooks djtinyhands your name is finally important.
of course he's a realDonaldTrump type of guy, he stole from 9/11 first responders so he and his mistress could hook up Nothing says I’m going to drain the swamp by freeing all the bottom dwellers to ooze back into society. jokeofapres IMPOTUS So much for Trump's fighting corruption. I see another winner.
Lock Trump up Crooks beget crooks... Truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth... Flood the swamp! Setting precedent....for himself. Obama pardoned traitors
What’s next for Trump? No one ever expects the Spanish inquisition. This one is worse than Blago. This guy is pure scumbag. Of course he was Rudy's boy. MAGA-Evangelicals are shouting for joy. Please don’t ask me why. A crook defends & save his kind. Trump is sending out signals to everyone in the old white boys’ criminal club: “Do whatever the hell you want. I’ve got your back.”
Drain the swamp, remember? gatewaypundit is reporting so I believe it to be true. elizabeth_joh Whatever he's trying to distract us from, must be a doozy. Letting all high profile people out of jail what a dishonest president wtf ! Because to Trump, these ar not real crimes. Counting the days til November.
Which begs the question what kind of man surround themself with traitors Liars, murderers, and thieves Wow! Ever since he was elected it seems that he works out of one playbook. On page one it says: Whenever you need to make a decision, just do what the villain in a nineties action movie would do. Page two: Repeat until re-elected.
realDonaldTrump is a CROOK We’ve seen this movie before...when one criminal gets loose and he runs down the cell block opening the gates for everyone else... suziepgk How many more swamp creatures is he going to pardon!? This is absolutely insane!!!!!!! Wow-is he just going down the list of criminals that are connected to him in some way? Kids-you can be anything you want to be without morals or a conscience.
You forgot Kerik is good buds with Giuiliani Keep Pardoning EVERYONE Trump, Pleeeease! 👍Maybe find a few Rapist, Murderers and Child Molesters to keep your Base Happy too. That’s white privilege in America!!!! 🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾
ddale8 So does Trump have his crack WH Staffers poring over ALL the CORRUPTION CONVICTIONS (only fair) in the last 10-15 years to find those who also should have their convictions pardoned? Or are Trump pardons an exclusive for friends/family and a few select '$$ donors.' (RHETORICAL) This corrupt man was a business partner of Rudy Giuliani, amirite?
ddale8 TonyGervin_ To bad Leona Helmsley is dead. Pardon pardon pardon I'm not sure how November is going to play out anymore TreasonousTrump helping his cronies. Filling up the swamp! So this Is what he meant by prison reform! 🙄 mom4boca Who’s next? El Chapo? How about pardon a motherfucker who isnt guilty

What on EARTH is that...” (H/t Eddie Izard) I guess another of his friends smh‼ Kerik, Blagojevich, DeBartolo, Stone..your favorite white collar crimes, tax fraud, gambling fraud, lying to officials, corruption..2 bad Epstein isn’t here. I suspect Weinstein will be next..assuming Barr doesn’t step in first. Perhaps you can get Pete Rose in the baseball HOF
Am I the only one seeing the pattern here? robdetf Why is he so special? So PrisonReform was about whites’ lies. ddale8 Gross
Of course he did, tax fraud and lying to officials Crimes!are his favorite Great news See people.... don't pay taxes. It pays off in the long run!!
